Jake's is one of the things I miss the most about Dallas. We lived within walking distance of Jake's Uptown and made if a frequent stop. I don't know exactly what it was that made Jake's burgers so good. The buns, the toppings, the environment? Just everything together made Jake's our favorite place. I always got the ""special of the month"". It usually involved jalapenos. Perfect. The seasoned fries are wonderful. Great selection of beer. Sitting outside on McKinney was just a fabulous location for burgers, fries and beer. We also enjoyed the live entertainment. I live in NYC now and of all things, we don't have a Jake's. Sad. Our last meal in Dallas before we moved was Jake's. I had my choice of any place I wanted and I chose Jake's. That says it all.
Pros: great food at great prices
